The Five Dollar Mail

Rounders, Miscreants, and Hooligans. Cowboy boots. Fights. Romance. Obscenely expensive postage.

Five dollars to mail a letter seems like a lot of money to shy farm girl Lily McMillian. When she’s hired in the spring of 1860 by Old Man Lynch as a cook for his stagecoach and Pony Express station, she finds out why it’s so expensive.

Dropped into a whirlwind of rowdy men and boys, fast horses, and frightening conflict, she inherits more than a busy kitchen and a pile of dirty laundry. She gains an unlikely band of brothers, a motley collection of rounders, miscreants, and troublemakers, all of whom are in sore need of someone to keep them in line.
